In the 12th novel in the New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the ba sis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire, Walt, Henry, and Vic disc over much more than they bargained for when they are called in to investiga te a hit-and-run accident involving a young motorcyclist near Devils Tower Craig Johnson's new novel, The Western Star, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017. In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend Henry Standing Bear are called to Hulett, Wyoming--the nearest town to America's first national monument, Devils Tower--to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny local police force by a wealthy entrepreneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry's '59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt's granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident. After all, in the words of Arthur Conan Doyle, whose Adventures of Sherlock Holmes the Bear won't stop quoting, "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact."

Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing. But a girl has gone mis sing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie's help. Is the girl dead? Did someone take her?

It's time for Sunnie to face her own demons--because they just might lead h er to the truth about what really happened all those years ago. *Publishers Weekly Praise for Two Nights "Reichs' newest heroine, the polar opposite of cerebral Temperance Brennan, is fueled by a well-nigh uncontrollable rage in her thrilling, violent sea rch for a missing girl so much like herself."--Kirkus Reviews "Brennan fans should appreciate Sunday [Night] . . . the star of this fast- paced series launch from bestseller Reichs. [The finale] seems designed for the big screen."--Publishers Weekly "The writing is crisp and vivid. . . . The story is cleverly plotted. . . . Reichs' legion of fans should be encouraged to check out this one."--Booklist.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The world's most intractable problems solved: ambitious lessons in leadersh ip and hope from free-thinkers and innovators who have tackled our biggest challenges From immigration reform to energy resources, from political paralysis to in equality and extremism, we are beset by a raft of huge and seemingly insurm ountable issues. The daily newspapers, the rolling 24-hour television news, portray a world in terminal decline. What goes under-reported are the success stories. Here, taking ten of the m ost knotty issues we face today, Jonathan Tepperman examines unsung individ uals' bold and innovative attempts against all odds and expectations to sol ve some of the important problems governments have struggled with for decad es. Each chapter tells the story of one government that's found a way to av oid the snares that entangle most of the others. The solutions described in the book aren't speculative: they've all already been tried, and they work . Controversial, provocative but always stimulating, Tepperman here offers a powerful, data-driven case for optimism. Written with flair and an infectious exuberance, The Fix is a book to restore hope to the pessimistic, and offer both practical advice and inspiration in a time of relentless bad news.

11 Toobin, Jeffrey AMERICAN HEIRESS: THE WILD SAGA OF THE KIDNAPPING, CRIMES AND TRIAL OF PATT Y HEARST
Anchor 2017 0345803159 / 9780345803153 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. From New Yorker staff writer and bestselling author of The Nine and The Run of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson, the definitive account of the ki dnapping and trial that defined an insane era in American history On February 4, 1974, Patty Hearst, a sophomore in college and heiress to th e Hearst Family fortune, was kidnapped by a ragtag group of self-styled rev olutionaries calling itself the Symbonese Liberation Army. The weird turns that followed in this already sensational take are truly astonishing--the H earst family tried to secure Patty's release by feeding the people of Oakla nd and San Francisco for free; bank security cameras captured "Tania" wield ing a machine gun during a roberry; the LAPD engaged in the largest police shoot-out in American history; the first breaking news event was broadcast live on telelvision stations across the country; and then there was Patty's circuslike trial, filled with theatrical courtroom confrontations and a dr amatic last-minute reversal, after which the term "Stockholm syndrome" ente red the lexicon. Ultimately, the saga highlighted a decade in which America seemed to be suffering a collective nervous breakdown. American Heiress portrays the electrifying lunacy of the time and the toxic mic of sex, politics, and violence that swept up Patty Hearst and captivated the nation.
